Indians 10, Astros 9 Recap | Box Score

Unreal game. 5 runs in the bottom of the 9th? Winning it on a walk-off homer in the 14th? Yes please. Oh, and that Lebron guy was amazing again too (his 15th year folks!), so rock on Cleveland.

Jose Ramirez prevailed in a 17-pitch at-bat against Ken Giles |

Ho-hum. From Jordan Bastian:

After the game, Astros manager, AJ Hinch, told’s Ben Weinrib that at-bat “completely changed the complexion of that inning.”

”It was quite an at-bat,” Hinch told “You don’t see that a lot -- he’s a good hitter. That’s why he’s probably going to be an All-Star and get a lot of attention for being one of the better hitters in the league.”

And as far as Giles goes? Nothing but respect for Ramirez.

”I went after him, and he won the battle,” Giles said. “Hats off to him. I was giving him all I got, and he got me at the end.”

Could Jason Kipnis’ breakout be the start of something good? |

Here’s hoping.
